EPLI Insurance

from Wichert Insurance

Employment Practices Liability

Employment practices liability insurance or EPLI is a way that many Ohio companies protect themselves against lawsuits related to hiring, work environment issues and other employment issues not related to on-the-job injuries. Your company needs an advocate in the insurance industry, and Wichert Insurance specializes in helping Ohio businesses and non-profit organizations meet their insurance needs affordably.


Unlike workers compensation insurance, EPLI isn’t required by Ohio state law. However, for many employers, it can be a valuable commodity. What would happen if an employee sued after not getting a promotion within your organization? Would your business be seriously harmed in the event of a sexual harassment suit? Would your company incur overwhelming financial losses in the event of a wrongful termination suit? EPLI helps to address all of these concerns and more.

What Protection Is Available with EPLI

Although an employer is responsible for creating a safe, inclusive job environment, no organization is exempt from the possibility of lawsuits filed by disgruntled employees. Today, the number of suits brought against employers is on the rise. With an EPLI policy from Wichert Insurance, you can protect your organization in the event of issues such as

  • Discrimination lawsuits
  • Wrongful termination claims
